Ever wonder how much it costs to rent retail space in a prime Dallas venue? Look no further than today's WWD, where freelancer Holly Haber offers a state of the union on local retail, laying out the case for just why Dallas is doing so well luring national names. With an onslaught of cache shops setting down stakes here—Steven Alan, TenOverSix, Tom Ford—shopping in Dallas has never been better. The well-sourced story talks to shopgirls from Elements, Canary and Gemma, as well as the big dogs from Stanley Korshak and Traffic Los Angeles, all of whom agree that Dallas is doing big retail business. Among the more interesting tidbits are lease prices; the article notes that (no surprise) Highland Park Village takes the cake on price-per-square foot ($185), NorthPark Center runs in the "high-$80s" and that Knox-Henderson is around $55 per square foot.
